BIOGRAPHY

Gerry Reinson

The President and Chief Geologist of the company is Dr. Gerry Reinson, Ph.D., P. Geol. Dr. Reinson holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Geology from the University of Saskatchewan, and a Ph.D. in Sedimentology from Australian National University. Dr. Reinson has over 35 years experience in the fields of petroleum geology, environmental geology and marine geology, having worked in both the public and private sectors as a research scientist, manager and petroleum explorationist.

His work experience includes employment with both major and junior oil companies and the Geological Survey of Canada. Dr. Reinson has been consulting for 26 years, either independently or associated with a larger integrated firm. His expertise lies in the fields of clastic and carbonate sedimentology as applied to petroleum exploration and exploitation, and environmental geology. He has published extensively and regularly conducts field and laboratory courses, and technical seminars, primarily in the areas of clastic sedimentology and facies characterization of petroleum reservoirs.

Dr. Reinson is a registered Professional Geologist with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA). He is an active member of the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG), American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), and the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM).
